computers 

one of the things that is kind of depressing to me about the future of computers is how either you were
- born before computers were common, and you don't know what a file is or what to do with it
- born somewhere between the 90s and early 00s and you know what a file is
- born in the last decade and due to apple's and google's efforts are likely to not know what a file is

it seems like such a small and basic thing but its actually scary how the concept of Files is often hidden now

While Microsoft claims that the stuff coming out of Copilot is fair use but I see that, in the Copilot terms of service, they put the responsibility on you. Just in case.

"The code, functions, and other output returned to you by GitHub Copilot are called "Suggestions" ... you retain ... responsibility for ... Suggestions you include in Your Code."

Study of 129K researchers working on grants finds women 13% less likely than men to be named as authors on subsequent articles; 58% less likely to be named on patents. When women were included as authors, they reported more work than men.

I wish I could find more transmasc folks on fedi to be mutuals with.

I've been searching for days and only found a few ones.

Let me know if you are, especially if you're disabled, anarchist and use CWs! :BlobhajTransPrideHeart:

Open Access history, 1987: Stevan Harnad, credited with coining "Gold/Green" OA, is bullied online by someone arguing for they/them pronouns. Their poo-poo words directly contributed to his belief that free internet publishing couldn't replace journals southampton.ac.uk/~harnad/skyw

I don't want tech to be "magic". I want it to be transparent and understood.

If "Share The Road" feels more difficult/dangerous than it used to, it's because it is.

Reminder that we’re still in the middle of the most deadly and maiming mass health emergency in human history.

Wear a mask. Even if you’re vaccinated and boosted and are in great shape and you don’t get a cute COVID symptoms and everything seems peachy, long COVID can end your life as you know it.

I would like to talk about the knock-on effects of mutual aid for a second.

A lot of people who get help don't have time to consider them.

A lot of people who give help don't have to.

But as someone who has been both, I will.

Every year in June I reread the Street Transvestite Action Revolutionary (STAR) manifesto that Marsha P Johnson and Sylvia Rivera, and others, authored. It's a reminder of what we are fighting for. It's less than a minute read.

Asking bi people to stay in the closet to avoid biphobia is itself biphobic! Don’t do this!

@swaggboi I really want a "dumb" appliance store. My fridge should keep things cold, my toaster warm things up, my printer put ink on thin slices of dead tree, and my TV show whatever video stream I send it. None of these need to reach out over the network. Please sell me well made, well functioning, single use devices, that serve their purpose well.

Curiosity poll regarding social media approach.

Please boost because we're really curious about the experience-approach for as many users as possible.

We have excluded two options here and will explain why:

Twitter exclusively: probably not gonna see this poll if you don't use Fediverse at all

Spiderman: We assume everyone would add Spiderman to their options because of how polls work.
